  • One Israeli creation for the weekend

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    1 week ago

    There isn’t much to say about Cherry Tomato. I’m sure you all know and love it, whether it is part of a dish or a healthy snack. The small-sized tomatoes are believed to go all the way back to Aztec Mexico in the 15th century. The Santorini Cherry Tomatoes were used in Greece in...

  • The Jewish Food Taste Test-OMG

    By Elana Horwich

    October 2, 2014 | 9:00 am

     

    Jewish Food gets a bad rep.  People think it is fattening, heavy, and bland.  This may have been true in the past but not since Meal and a Spiel came to town.  This video is hilarious insight into how Jewish Food is percieved. 

    Enough with Jewish Food not being considered...

  • Spicy Black Cod Tacos [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    September 8, 2014 | 5:12 pm

    The innovation of these tacos were mothered by pure hunger.

    I happened to have a fresh piece of black cod in the fridge, but besides that there was nothing to eat except for an old package of blue corn tortillas from a Mexican dinner party I had catered. In the near empty veggie...

  • Chimichurri [recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    July 3, 2014 | 7:30 pm

    Argentianian Chimichurri is a great sauce to make and have on hand in the fridge for steak, chicken, vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes, and on some salads. They call it the ketchup of Latin America, which means you can use it on anything. My personal favorite is for Kosher Pigs in...

  • How to Choose an Olive Oil

    By Elana Horwich

    June 24, 2014 | 5:22 pm

    A common question I receive in my cooking classes is which olive oil to choose. This is NOT a no-brainer question.

    I can walk into any market, glance at my choices and in a matter of minutes, make my decision. Minutes, yes minutes. Not seconds. Choosing an olive oil takes some...

    By Elana Horwich

    June 11, 2014 | 9:00 am

    (This article originially appeared on YouBeauty.com)

    What I love about this frittata is that in a relatively short amount of time you can easily feed lots of people brunch. Feel free to double or triple the recipe and leave this baby on the buffet. If you double/triple the recipe...

  • How To Stuff Your Face and Stay Thin Over the Holidays

    By Elana Horwich

    December 18, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Eat only celery! Just kidding. Like that’s an option. People who give that kind of advice clearly could never be good in bed.

    We warm-blooded people are all going to eat a lot…as this is a time to relax, be with loved ones and stuff our happy faces.

    I often talk about how food...

  • Hocus Pocus

    By Michael Israel

    August 13, 2013 | 3:39 pm

    As I mentioned in last week’s blog, I am always fascinated by the exotic foods that I discover in Encyclopedia of Jewish Food. This week, I am focusing on an ingredient that is not very exotic for most Jews, but the way that I am preparing it is unlike any traditional Jewish...

  • Walk, run to cardiac health

    By Jared Baker

    January 30, 2013 | 4:12 pm

    Here’s a straightforward recipe for heart health: Get off the couch and move.

    For some people, that means heading to the gym, but others may be more inclined to take in some fresh air. Starting an outdoor walking or running program can be a great way to improve fitness, burn off...

  • Author, psychiatrist Judith Orloff on the power of emotional freedom

    By Orit Arfa

    October 17, 2011 | 3:12 pm

    Dr. Judith Orloff’s adolescence reads like a Jewish version of “Girl, Interrupted,” the 1999 film starring Wynona Ryder as teenage social misfit whose parents sent her to a psych ward. However, there is a happier ending in Orloff’s story.

    In the opening chapter of her New...

    June 14, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Yes, I Still Think You Should Get Skinny
    So as you may know, a while back, I posted a blog about why I think you should get skinny.  You can read it here.  It was reposted as the “this” on Jezebel which you can find here.  And since then, I’ve been taking in what has been a...

    By Julia Bendis

    March 11, 2011 | 9:46 am

    Today my 11-year-old son, Tyler shared a very interesting conversation that he had with his classmates.  It started during lunch time when he pulled out a peanut butter with bananas, and honey sandwich on whole grain bread.  After Tyler was done with it, he pulled out carrots,...

  • Dig, plant, grow, give—sharing the bounty of food

    By Rachel Heller

    November 19, 2008 | 12:42 am

    If there's one thing Gabe Goldman wishes more Angelenos would do next spring, it's get their hands dirty.

    The American Jewish University (AJU) professor and director of experiential education is signing up students, synagogues and anyone else with a piece of land and a green thumb...

  • Delivery chef unable to savor his culinary success

    By Adam Wills

    September 3, 2008 | 11:14 pm

    Crab cakes drizzled with zesty chipotle lime sauce and peppercorn brandy glazed pork loin are a few of the entrées The Fresh Diet delivers to clients. But its Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, who developed most of the dishes offered on the meal-delivery program's menu, has never...
  • A healthy hut—lighter side of Sukkot cooking

    By Rachel Kantrowitz

    October 5, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    As you look forward to Sukkot, you may have a few lingering thoughts from the reflection and retrospection of the High Holidays. Perhaps you promised to treat your body to more healthful, nutritious food. Or maybe your new goal is to take time out to observe Jewish holidays, or to...
  • PASSOVER: Yemenite Flavor at the Seder

    By Nili Goldstein

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    For me, Yemenite cooking is the taste of home. My parents were born in Sharab, a region in southwest Yemen. I was born in Tel Aviv, and grew up on my mother and father's traditional cooking. The food in our home was always fresh, simple and richly spiced. On Passover, the fragrance...

  • Taking Women’s Health to Heart

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    February 24, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    Nancy Kearson knew she had high blood pressure, but she wasn't aware of any other health problems until a friend urged her to see a physician four years ago. That exam may have saved her life.

    Kearson, who at the time was 53 years old and working for a demanding CPA firm,...

  • Salami Shortage No Baloney

    February 17, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    Five hunks of Hebrew National salami lie side by side in a glass display case at Ben's Kosher Delicatessen in midtown Manhattan. When compared with the crispy corn dogs and enormous latkes, they don't look like much. But the takeout counter guy is relieved he has any salami to sell...

  • Pomegranates: The Healthy, Spiritual High Holiday Fruit

    By Gaby Wenig

    September 18, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    When you cut open a pomegranate, first removing its turreted crown, then scoring its red, leathery skin, before breaking it apart under water (so the juices won't squirt and stain your clothes), you are presented with sacks of glistening, abundant garnet fruit caviar.

    These fruit...

  • Taking the Schmaltz Out of Our Food

    By Beverly Levitt

    September 13, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    At sundown on Monday we usher in the happiest day of our calendar, Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. For the next 10 days we'll be called upon to reexamine our lives -- to wake up and not only smell the roses, but plant them for other people to enjoy.

    The Days of Awe end at sundown...
